Abstract

We have experimentally implemented the distribution of photon pairs produced by spontaneous parametric downconversion through telecom dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing filters. Using the measured counts and coincidences between symmetric channels, we evaluate the maximum fringe visibility that can be obtained with polarization-entangled photons and compare different filter technologies.
